Good god. Do not, repeat, do not listen to this one while attempting to drive, the chances of going off the road are very high.

Not the best quality recording(s), but this show is massive. The Playin>Samson>Playin by itself is just ridculously good. And the Eyes>Dancin>Wharf Rat>Franks? Don't get me started. Had never heard this one before and it really got that inner reaction when it all comes together: the hair on the back of you neck stands up and you can't stop smiling. This is one that reminds you that this band is head and shoulders above the competition. Ridiculous.

Funny, you can hear the crowd react to Donna Jeans wail/scream in the first part of Playin'. It's really abrupt and loud, definetly caught my attention. It sounds like something scared her, she screamed and she happened to be right near the microphone. :-)

Estimated, Terrapin> Playin'> Samson and Dalilah> Playin', is definetly an awsome way to close a first set. That kind of setlist almost seems like it would typicaly occur in the middle/end of a second set. I've always liked good first set closers and this is an unusually awesome one. Thanks!

Well, I tried. But I also feuled the fire. Seems the only thing that can really hold our attention is when we have references to randy cats, roid-rage raccoons or the continued adventures of Chuch Norris' beard.

It's all good, just as long as we have the background music right.

I'm afraid that today the office was doomed before I even walked in the door. Now my car has to endure another 45 minutes of door rattling abuse. Yay.

That was pretty funny, j, pretty funny...good way to start the morning since though I generally don't go with a 77, at least I can join you two for the laughs. Hey, if you need something to patch anything up with the wife (not that I'm suggesting anything), I got some used lyrics handy if you want any...

Cows, sheep, and now cats. To say nothing of that hapless herd of dead horses that gets a regular flogging hereabouts.

This place is a zoo.

A raccoon is just a cat with a mask.

Kind of a feline gimp.

Yes, cats, methinks, are mere breakfast morsels for the average raccoon, and the mask is worn with confidence, not out of any fear of recognition...why else would you have a zebra-striped tail if you weren't letting everyone know, "hey, here I am tough guy...you talkin' to me!?"

Nah. Just barely made it to work unscathed. Just wanted to both point this one out AND put a warning lable on it. For example, the outro-jam in Wharf Rat is enough to make a M1 Abrams tank go off the road. Just stunning. I just may have to risk it again and re-cue it up for the ride home. I am a glutton for punishment.

I've started with the '74 show, but went with the Clugston version, less audience and better vocals. It's a monster.

No Alen, first u should probably sue ur parents for giving u a
name that everyone on earth will 4ever confuse w/ allen, alan & allan. then u should ask urself if u are truly towtruck material.
u may wish to start with a smaller vehicle with a trailer hitch. or tie a rope 2 an antique yoke. That is how i started, & let me tell u i hit the glass ceiling vry quickly. on second thot, just go 4 it!!!
